"there's minor adjustments to the grade and the curvature of the roadway, but overall for the project there really isn't much of an increase or change in the cost. we haven't made that determination yet, but

" ""everyone likes him, gets along with
6:09 pm
everyone." "yeah, he's a special guy. he comes to coffee every morning and just a lot of knowledge. he's an older gentleman, but a lot of knowledge." all of bob pflughaupt's knowledge comes from spending more than 80 years in dusty fields. "i've been on the farm all my life, really." and this is a way of life... "you have to stay with it." ...that comes with ups and downs. bob pflughaupt / walker "you have to go through all the weather, all the bugs, all the weeds." one down he never expected: the stroke he had this past summer. but that still wasn't enough to keep him away from all of this. "i feel alright, just can't walk. can't get around." about 50 local farmers - many of them friends - say that, and bob's generosity, is why they're here. larry bridgewater / friend "if he was able, he'd be out here helping if somebody was in need, if he could do it, he'd be out here just like anybody else." and with this many
6:10 pm
hands, and this much equipment, the crops went fast. "i guess they're all going to get it done today." bud miller / farmer 56:18-:23 "we're getting probably 45 acres an hour or 50; we'll be done by 2 o'clock this afternoon." to bob's sister mary, it's simply overwhelming. "it's very nice. very nice." as for bob, it's clear that this gathering... "it's just wonderful to have this many." ...means everything to him. so many people helping a man who would help anyone else. mary lacock / sister "i don't know all their names, but it's just good to see the community come together."

not really jack-- it's been a busy summer for the new head coach coming up on local 5 sports we'll hear from him and "now, local 5 sports
6:18 pm
jon: fred hoiberg and steve prohm aren't that different. both very good guys-- both family oriented-- but most fans haven't really gotten to see steve prohm all that much. so last week when i sat down with him we talked about a variety of things-- coaching, players, but most importantly how he's adjusting to life in iowa. " steve prohm's summer of 2015 has been a whirlwind. making the transition from murray state to iowa state wasn't easy for prohm who spent nearly a decade with the racers. (steve prohm/isu head coach) "you know any transition is tough this is the first time
6:19 pm
i've made a transition with a wife with a son every other time i've made a coaching move or move cities i was single or i was a child. " prohm and his family haven't had a chance to let this all sink in-- with that trip to spain over the summer and then getting this team ready for the new season. "we haven't really had time to sit down and hug had a nice night out or a nice weekend and just said man can you believe this man i'm the head coach at iowa state and we're really blessed" says prohm. prohm doesn't expect it to happen until maybe next spring. "it'd probably come after a couple of big wins but it won't probably officially come until we finish up a great year and we can go to the beach for a week." one thing that really drives the new bench boss for iowa state is his faith. something he hasn't tried hide in hopes that it could help the young men he's coaching, the community around him and beyond. "i told somebody the other day they said i
6:20 pm
can't pray with them i just will pray for them in hopes that they make good decisions that they impact people and that they are successful in life. i'm a leader in this community. im a husband im a father and i'm a basketball coach but i don't want to be known as just the basketball coach i want to be known as a man who has impacted people not only in this team or in this program but in this community and now because i'm in the big 12 and our market is so big hopefully nationally." as for the game itself-- prohm couldn't be more excited to see what hilton magic is like first hand. "that's the one thing. i've heard it on tv, i've seen it, i know it's a big time atmosphere and i can't wait for i know the nov. 6th game but the 16th our first home game just to see what the electricity is really like." usa today's coaches poll came out today here's a look at the top 10. north carolina and kentucky
6:21 pm
tied for the top spot-- and remember the tar heels come to cedar falls this season. maryland number 3. duke is ranked fourth and in at number five is kansas. 6 is virginia iowa state is number 7 in this poll. oklahoma is there at number 8. nova and arizona round out the top 10. and the big 12 preseason poll came out voted on by coaches -- and iowa state getting less love from their own conference than they do nationally-- the cyclones are picked to finish third but did get one first place vote-- kansas is a unanimous favorite-- and then it's oklahoma. texas and baylor round out the top 5 of the 10 teams in the conference. jon/sx3s stephanie/sx3s jack/sx3s we'll be right back... you're
